“A cycle path I used recently. You start and end it by teleporting” — we can’t improve on this comment by Eolaí the Artist.
We have already covered the N2-N3 link road in a special edition, but the above feature is worth highlighting and expanding on. It’s just ahead of a major motorway-like junction with the N2 before it becomes the M2 motorway — in most other countries this section of the N2 would all be motorway.
The roundabout ahead is a massive 170m long and has three lanes on it. The junction from the start of the slip roads on one side to the start of slip roads on the other is nearly 350m. The Dutch would likely grade segregate cycling and motoring in such a location, but here there is zero cycling provision to get from one side of the junction to the other.
This is an older image from Street View but it still looks much the same with just another slip roads to the left of the image:
